Homemade Natural Shoofly Pie without Sugar

Shoofly pie is one of the lesser known pies derived from Amish origins. The traditional pie contains enormous amounts of sugar and other non paleo ingredients.  Although not completely paleo, this pie comes pretty close and is perfect for gatherings or just a evening dessert.

Filling:

1 Cup of pure molasses (the most natural you can find)

1 egg

¾ teaspoon baking soda

¾ cup hot water

2 tablespoons of arrowroot powder

Topping:

1 cup coconut flour

½ cup tapioca flour

4 tablespoons honey

2 eggs

¼ cup butter

1 Paleo Pie crust

Directions:

Mix all the filling ingredients and pour into pie crust. Make sure arrowroot powder is all mixed in with no clumps. Mix coconut flour, tapioca flour, honey, and eggs. Add ¼ cup of butter, sliced and chilled, and mix in by hand until it forms little clumps. Pour crumbs on top of filling and bake at 400 degrees until the outside is firm but the center is still jiggly (about 30 minutes).
